Oh all right.
Well to start I’d say focus on the above. Especially the FotFH shield makes Hellborn builds, so I’d farm one every playtrough (and a near perfect one when you reach your level cap). It’s great because with EE it heals you with every Nova and helps keeping your on fire.
Also you’ll want to consider getting a Rubi (slag is the best choice, don’t need evisceration on Krieg, after level 43 his inherent bonus to melee is greater than 50 % and hence bladed guns - save for Law and the Rapier - are pointless on him and actually decrease his melee damage) by quest farming the Rakkaholics Anonymous quest (turn in with Moxxi, not Mordecai). The Rubi is great for healing, you don’t even need to shoot it, as long as you heal it whenever damage is done (e.g. throwing grenades, FotFH novas, status effects, etc…) you’ll get healed.
Also I forgot to mention the awesome Pimpernel (arguably the best sniper and one of the best guns in the game if you know how to shoot it, sniper from the Don’t Copy That Floppy side mission in the Pirate DLC), get one of these as well.
